Housed in the Connellan Airways Hangar, Alice's original aerodrome, are displays on pioneer aviation in the Territory including Royal Flying Doctor (RFDS) planes.

Easily the most interesting exhibit is the wreck of the Kookaburra , a tiny plane that crashed in the Tanami Desert in 1929 while searching for Charles Kingsford Smith and his co-pilot Charles Ulm, who had gone down in their plane, the Southern Cross . The Kookaburra pilots, Keith Anderson and Bob Hitchcock, perished in the desert, while Kingsford Smith and Ulm were rescued.
